Territorial reproduction and transformation in a local labor market: the animated film workers of Los Angeles

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper opens with a brief account of the economic and technical characteristics of the animated film industry. The geographical outlines of the local labor market for animated film workers are described. It is demonstrated that there is a trade-off between commuting distances and wage rates in this labor market. The relations between labor turnover, employment, and location are examined, and it is hypothesized that there is a positive correlation between high turnover rates and the geographical agglomeration of employment places. It is indicated that animated film studios are in practice engaging in strategies of the redeployment of production capabilities and this is leading to a marked transformation of the local labor market. In the final section of the paper an attempt is made in terms of a suggested theory of territorial reproduction and transformation.
